Resound Linx 7² / Enzo 7
The LiNX2 7 is a premium hearing aid for your people who spend significant amounts of time in moderate listening environments. It supersedes the LiNX 7. It uses the newest version of ReSound’s dual-core Coyote 4.5 processing chip which assigns one processor to deal with the sound processing and the other to wireless functionality. The gives the LiNX2 7 twice the processing power of the previous generation of chips but without additional battery consumption. The original LiNX was available only in behind the ear models, whilst this version has the full range of styles. Features 17 Warp Channels Generally the more sound processing channels your hearing aid has, the more accurately it can be programmed for your hearing loss. The idea is to replicate what your inner ear should be doing and around 17 or 18 channels is considered to be the optimum number so having many more may not provide further improvement. Binaural Directionality II As background noise levels rise, the hearing aids will zoom in on the sounds it considers to be more important, such as speech but without losing the sense of what is going on around you. Binaural Environmental Optimizer II If you have a pair, the hearing aids will work together to analyze the listening environment and automatically adjust volume and noise reduction settings so that you will hear comfortably even when moving through varying sound environments. Noise Tracker II This improves your comfort in noisy situations without making it harder to understand speech. The LiNX2 7 has better noise reduction than the LiNX2 5 but can’t cut out quite as much noise as the LiNX2 9 Sound Shaper If there are high frequency sounds that you can no longer hear due to cochlear dead regions they can be shifted down the frequency spectrum to a range where you can hear. This improves the how well you hear important speech cues that would otherwise have been lost. Music Mode Music Mode gives you a clearer, richer, distortion-free music experience. Tinnitus Sound Generator and Nature Sounds Choose from tinnitus therapy sounds, new Nature Sounds, or your preferred sound streamed directly to your hearing aids. The ReSound Relief and ReSound Smart apps provide even more options for managing your tinnitus. This helps to break the “cycle” and provides relief from tinnitus by diverting attention away from it with a range of soothing background sounds. Made for iPhone The LiNX2 7 is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and the new Apple Watch, using their Smart app which you can download. This means you can stream stereo sound directly to your hearing aids as if you were wearing wireless headphones. You can access voice calls, FaceTime, music, movies, spoken directions, information and any other audio from your iPhone/iPad. Unlike many other hearing aids, this lets you connect directly from your device to the hearing aid without using intermediary devices, although they are also compatible with the whole range of ReSound Unite wireless accessories. You can discreetly adjust the volume, bass or treble using the app whilst Geotag helps the aid to remember what settings you preferred for any particular location so that you can set the aid to work in the same way next time you visit that area. You can even use the app to help find your LiNX2 7 hearing aids if you misplace them.
